QBs taken 1st overall since 1983:

John Elway - Turned out okay
Vinny Testaverde - Turned out average
Troy Aikman - Turned out okay
Jeff George - Bust
Drew Bledsoe - Turned out average
Peyton Manning - Turned out okay
Tim Couch - Bust
Michael Vick - Jury's still out
David Carr - Jury's still out
Carson Palmer - Jury's still out but will probably be in the Pro Bowl this year
Eli Manning/Phillip Rivers - Jury's still out
Alex Smith - Unknown

I'd say that's 4 that lived up to their #1 status (Elway, Aikman, Manning, Palmer). 2 that did not (George and Couch). 2 that came close (Testaverde and Bledsoe). And the rest we don't know yet.

The only one on the list starting from day one ON AN FIRST YEAR EXPANSION TEAM is Carr. Or was Couch on the expansion Browns?

Yeah, Couch is the other one.

But that's just a list of QBs that were taken #1 overall. Many of them weren't opening day starters.

Here's what the Texans can learn from the Dallas game:

We need new uniforms. Wearing your original or throw back unis will cause you to lose.

See! The answers are so simple!
